BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



Elder Samuel Flory. 

By Peter Brower. 

Eld. Samuel Flory was born in Augus- 
ta County, Va., Sept. 10, 1826. Although 
his was but the humble country home of 
a large family, that home was a Christian 
home, where, in its humble devotions, he 
was early taught the ways of piety, and 
reverence for God and his people. He 
grew to manhood as many other boys, 
but, like boys in general, there were with- 
in him undeveloped possibilities. His 
education was limited. He attended the 




Eld. Samuel Flory. 

Cross Roads school during the winter 
when he could, assisting on the farm 
during the summer. Those days, — espe- 
cially in his native country, — were not 
days of rapid, progressive work, like the 
present when the work is done largely 
by machinery, — but they were days when 
farm work meant strength and brawn. 

After reaching his majority, and hear- 
ing of the possibilities of the -then far 
western plains, he started out to investi- 
gate for himself. Railroads then were 
few and far between. He, with others, 
traveled much on foot. Seeing that the 



reports he had heard in the East were 
well warranted, he resolved some day to 
make his home in the West. 

In August, 1851, he was married to 
Mary Brower, of the same county where 
he lived. She proved a great help to him 
in his earlier ministerial duties. As the 
vast plains of the West attracted many 
of our people, others came from Virginia 
and Ohio. Bro. Flory, with his then lit- 
tle family, moved in 1854 to Keokuk 
County, Iowa. It was soon apparent 
that an organization should be effected. 
This was accomplished the following 
year, in the presence of Elders Christian 
Long and Samuel Garber, from Illinois. 
At this meeting Bro. David Brower was 
ordained to the full ministry, and the 
subject of this sketch to the deacon's of- 
fice, both being charter members of 
what is now known as the English Riv- 
er congregation. 

In 1858 he was chosen to the ministry 
in the above congregation, and labored 
faithfully during his long and useful life. 
While on a visit to his native State, his 
beloved companion, who had stood by 
him so faithfully, both in the home and 
his church work, was suddenly called to 
her reward. In 1873 he was married to 
Sister Bettie Perry, of Virginia, who was 
a true mother in Israel, always faithful 
in the church and the home, making a 
true home for the pilgrim as he so- 
journed among us. Some time previous 
he had been advanced in the ministry, 
and in this year he was ordained to the 
full ministry, and placed in charge of 
the English River church in 1879. Under 
his care the church increased rapidly. 
While he was strong in carrying out the 
distinctive principles of the church, he 
was progressive, and favored Sunday- 
schools and series of meetings. Some 
very successful meetings were held dur- 
ing his care of the church. Eld. Flory 
was very faithful in his ministerial duties. 
If he had an appointment, you could ex- 
pect him there, if it was possible to get 
there.

Why Send Orders 



to the Brethren rublishinj? H( 



Th 



is a Icsitimate question and if 



rightly considered will settle the matter in regard to your future orders. 

Notice These Reasons. 

1. Because we can supply \vliat you want. 

2. Because our prices are rij^lit and our service cannot be cxceUed. 

3. Because the Bretliren Publisliingr House exists solely for the work it may 
do In extending the Kingdom of Christ. 

4. Because it is not a private enterprise and can never be exploited for the 
benefit of an individual or set of individuals. 

5. Because all profits accruinpr frcmi tlie Business are turned over to the Gen- 
eral Mission Board for Missionary purposes. 

Many more reasons could be given, hut if you will consider these five 
carefully, we are sure you will decide to send all your orders for hooks, Bibles, 
periodicals, Sunday-school aufl churcli sui)i)lics to -the 

BRETHREN PUBLISHING HOUSE, Elgin, Illinois. 



BRETHREN FAMILT ALMANAC, 1915. 



Eld. Flory was truly great in his wise 
administration and in his executive abil- 
ity. He was sociable and kind, yet firm, 
so that he was known the country over 
as " Uncle Sammy." While his main 
work was centered in his home con- 
gregation, his work broadened out over 
the District, and even other States. He 
served his District a number of times on 
Standing Committee, as well as on other 
committees of various kinds. He truly 
was a father to those who followed him 
in official capacities, always giving his 
colaborers a word of encouragement. He 
raised several daughters and one son, 
who is a faithful deacon in the same 
church.- In 1901 he, feeling the weight 
of the work, and the infirmities of old 
age coming upon him, resigned his care 
of the church as elder in charge, placing 
the duties on younger shoulders. He 
was ever ready, however, to give good 
and wise counsel. 

His second companion was called to 
her reward several years previous to 
this, but Bro. Flory was with us some 
years longer. 

He preached his last sermon April 5, 
1914. He opened meeting June 7, 1914, 
and attended his last meeting June 14, 
1914. Although it rained that day, and 
many who were younger did not go, 
Uncle Samuel was there. On Friday, 
the 19th, he was stricken by his final 
sickness. He was again anointed, ac- 
cording to apostolic precept, and looked 
forward resignedly with strong faith, — • 
only waiting for the change. God took 
him home at the ripe age of almost 
eighty-eight years July 3, 1914, just as 
the sun was lowering in the west. Many 
said, " K ever any one was ready to go, 
Uncle Sam was." 

July 5, 1914, in the same house where 
he had so often admonished us who are 
living, as well as many who have pre- 
ceded him to the spirit world, his funeral 
services were held, conducted by Breth- 
ren D. P. Miller and W. D. Grove, as- 
sisted by Brethren A. W. Miller and S. I. 
Bowman. In the presence of a great 



number of sorrowing relatives and 
friends, his body was laid to rest in the 
cemetery near by, to await the resur- 
rection of the just, but his works still 
live. 

[This entire article, excepting the two 
closing paragraphs, which were written 
by Bro. A. H. Brower, was prepared by 
Eld. Peter Brower before his death. — 
Ed.] 

New Testament Simplicity. 

In like manner also, that women adorn 
themselves in modest apparel, with shame- 
facedness and sobriety; not with broided 
hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 
but (which becometh women professing 
g-odliness) with good works. — 1 Tim, 2: 9, 
10. 




Whose adorning let it not be that outward 
adorning of plaitijig the hair, and of wearing 
of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let 
it be the hidden man of the heart, in that 
which is not corruptible, even the ornament 
of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in 
the sight of God of great price. For after 
this manner in the old time the holy women 
also, who trusted in God, adorned tliem- 
selves, being in subjection unto their own 
husbands. — 1 Peter 3: 3-5.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



Biographical Sketch of Eld. 
Daniel M. Holsinger. 

By James A. Sell. 

"Lives of great men all remind us 
We can make our lives sublime, 

And, departing, leave behind us 

Footprints on the sands of time." 

In recounting the lives of men we must 
estimate them according to the standards 
of the day in which they lived, — men who 
were leaders when ideals were lower 
than now, and the means of development 
in the arts and sciences were slower or 
not at hand. 

The subject of this sketch was born in 
Bedford County, Pa., in Morrison's Cove, 
Oct. 22, 1812. His father, John Holsin- 
ger, was one of the pioneer ministers in 
the Church of the Brethren in the early 
days of the church in this part of the 
country. His mother's maiden name was 
Elizabeth Mack, a direct descendant of 
Alexander Mack. He was united in mar- 
riage with Mary Ritz in 1832. Both 
united with the church the following 
year. He was elected to the ministry in 
1841. , He was naturally endowed with 
a powerful intellect, but in his earlier 
years he possessed few advantages of 
mental culture. After his marriage and 
election to the ministry, while working 
at his trade, — that of coopering, — he at- 
tended a night school taught by Prof. 
John Miller, father of Sister Emma A. 
Replogle. He made English grammar a 
specialty. Such was his native ability 
that in one winter season, he so mastered 
this branch of learning that he rarely, 
in his writing or preaching, made an 
error in language. 

He possessed a wonderful memory, a 
taste for poetry, and a profound rever- 
ence for the Holy Scriptures. Accord- 
ingly, his memory was well stored with 
beautiful and useful things that were al- 
ways at hand to enrich and embellish a 
sermon. It is doubtful if he ever pre- 
pared, or studied out, a sermon. He 
called that "binding the Spirit." He 
knew his Bible, and when he entered up- 
on a subject, his knowledge and memory 
would serve him in good shape, and he 



had at hand plenty of matter to. make an 
edifying discourse. His " dry sermons " 
were mostly those that were too deep 
for his auditors. 

The prevailing language of the first 
settlers of the Cove was German, but the 
introduction of the English schools be- 
gan to relegate it to the rear. The young 
people who attended school were better 
satisfied with English preaching. Bro. 
Holsinger, by virtue of his English edu- 
cation, became popular as a preacher, and 
was called upon to solemnize most of the 
marriages, and to officiate at the funerals. 

The prime of his life was spent in the 
Clover Creek church, and during this 
time he was a most active minister in 
the body. They did not have " turns " in 
preaching, but extended " liberty " to 
each other. As Bro. Holsinger was al- 
ways prepared, others, knowing this, 
depended upon him. In this way the 
burden fell upon him, but, instead of com- 
plaining, he seemed to enjoy it. He was 
regarded by all as a man " mighty in 
the Scriptures," and his presence caused 
the more timid to feel somewhat embar- 
rassed. 

In his last years his eyesight failed, 
so that he could not see to. read. This, 
however, did not greatly interfere with 
his pulpit ministrations. He could accu- 
rately quote Scripture on all subjects and 
give the reference, and "line out" whole 
hymns suitable for any occasion. He 
could comment on hymns to good effect, 
and thus aid others in singing with the 
"spirit and the understanding." His 
preaching had the old-time ring, and he 
had a style peculiar to himself that did 
not always harmonize with his message. 
This was his weakest point. His life was a 
living example of the truths that he 
preached. His logic and reasoning were 
sound, the selection of his subjects was 
good, and he would marshal an array of 
Scriptural proof that was enlightening 
and spiritually refreshing. But his tone 
of voice did not always drive the truth 
home as his friends and admirers would 
have liked.

The Girl Who Disappeared ?5ff?rd G?"io«. 

Mr. Roe was formerly special prosecutor for Cook Co., 111., and had chargre 
of the cases ag-ainst panders and keepers of disorderly houses. He knows the 
"White Slave trade" as few other men do; better probably than any of the 
patrons of the prostitutes. He knows why girls disappear from their homes and 
how they are kept in these places. He is also one of the foremost fighters of the 
hellish traffic in souls. Out of his wide knowledge and strong purpose comes this 
book. The book is an illustration of the old saying, that " Truth is stranger than 
fiction," and the readers of this book will agree that it can be made as interesting. 
It is a story woven from the facts of many cases that have come under Mr. Roe's 
observation. Illustrated with full page photo engra^-ings. 352 pages bound in 
cloth. Price postpaid, $1.50. Agents wanted. Write for terms.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



He was truly a man of the "old 
school." He yielded slowly, and if at all, 
reluctantly, to any change from the cus- 
toms of the fathers. . This also gave color 
to his preaching. The church had in 
him an earnest advocate, not only of its 
principles, but also its peculiarities. The 
" old order," to. him, seemed to be always 
the best order. Although his son was 
the aggressive leader of the Progressive 
movement that brought the division of 
the church, he never manifested the least 
sympathy for him, nor gave one word of 
encouragement in his course. A cer- 
tain brother said of him: "Daniel M. 
Holsinger adhered, during his Ijfetime, 
tenaciously to the conservative part of 
the church, and so averse was he to any 
encroachments on its rules and doctrines 
that he could not have any sympathy 
with the new departure. Indeed, his con- 
victions were so deep-rooted that he 
had no patience whatever with the Pro- 
gressives. To him the Church of the 
Brethren owes a debt of gratitude for his 
services and self-denials that should be 
perpetuated in a monument of stone and 
marble, erected to his memory." 

The whole of his life was spent in Mor- 
rison's Cove, except a few years after 
he moved into the upper end of the 
Juniata Valley, in the Duncansville 
church. Here he was ordained to the 
eldership in 1863. He served several 
times on the Standing Committee and 
was sent out at different times on im- 
portant missions. 

In response to a call from the State of 
Maine, to send a representative of the 
church there, to introduce its doctrines, 
the Eastern District of Pennsylvania 
made choice of him. No results of 
the movement were ever recorded. 

He was a member of the John A, Bow- 
man committee, sent by Annual Meeting 
to Tennessee. Bowman had been ex- 
pelled from the church, but continued to 
preach and baptize believers, and after 
his death they desired to unite with the 
church. The committee decided to re- 
ceive all on the baptism of Bowman who 
would come at once, but that those who 



came later would have to be rebaptized. 
For this the committee was severely crit- 
icised through the church paper. Bro. 
Holsinger defended the action of the 
committee in a masterful manner. It 
can be truly said of him as Paul said of 
Christ, that " he loved the church and 
gave himself for it." He served the 
church to the neglect of his own business. 
He never prospered financially, but never 
faltered in his support of the church. 
The Clover Creek church was in the ze- 
nith of its glory, in his prime, and it pre- 
sented him with a small farm, where he 
lived and reared his family in comfort. 

Though he earned his bread in the 
sweat of his face, he was always a dili- 
gent student. There was not a point in 
the varied interests of church work, its 
government, doctrines, missions, princi- 
ples, decisions or peculiarities, on which 
he was not well enough informed to be 
a reliable authority. This made him a 
safe and able counselor. Few, if any, of 
his associates equaled him in native abil- 
ity, or had acquired the same fund of 
information. Had he possessed more 
dash, or kept more in advance of the 
times, his power, or at least his popular- 
ity, would have been greater. The same 
qualities that made him popular at one 
day, operated against him at another. 

While he towered above others in his 
attainments, he was not dogmatic. He 
often had to listen to others advocating 
things that would not stand the test of 
his scrutiny, but he still manifested pa- 
tience and forbearance. 

Although he had covered the whole 
field of biblical lore and could make nice 
points of criticism, he was not given to 
disputation, and did not approve of it. He 
never took kindly to the Brethren hold- 
ing public debates. He held that it was 
our duty fully to preach the whole truth 
and leave the results with the people and 
the Lord. 

He possessed more good qualities and 
fewer faults than are usually combined 
in one man. His convictions were deep 
and abiding. His firmness was almost

BRETHRIiN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



unyielding, yet he was kind and sociable. 
He was agreeable as a companion, though 
he rarely jested. His words were those 
of truth and soberness. His preaching 
was conducted with dignity and colored 
with seriousness. To him life and eter- 
nity were terrible realities, and this gave 
color to all his discourses. Nothing 
light or mirthful ever marred his pulpit 
efforts. His traveling and preaching, 
away from home, were mostly after he 
had passed the zenith of his dgiys. Even 
then his ability as an expounder was ad- 
mired. But his manner of delivery did 
not so well suit the taste of the more fas- 
tidious, and it, of course, militated against 
his popularity. 

After some changes in his business af- 
fairs, and his family was reared and gone, 
he again returned to his old home at 
Clover Creek, where the rest of his life 
was spent. Though practically blind 
for a number of years, he continued to 
preach. Even in his advanced life, with 
his affliction of sitting in darkness, he 
was cheerful and strong physically, men- 
tally and spiritually. 

He died Jan. 31, 1886. The close of his 
life was serene and useful. He served 
his day and generation well, and the in- 
fluence of his life, in the service of his 
Divine Master, no one can estimate. He 
leaves to posterity a record that is a 
priceless heritage. The world is all the 
better because such men as Bro. Hol- 
singer lived in it. 

"Sure, when his g-entle spirit fled 
To realms above the azure dome, 

With arms outstretched God's angels said 
'Welcome to heaven's home, sweet 
home?' " 

Hollidaysburg, Pa. 

Long Life of Animals. 

Undoubtedly the longest lived animal 
on earth is the whale, its span of exist- 
ence being estimated by Cuvier at 1000 
years. The next largest animal, the ele- 
phant, will, under favorable conditions, 
live 400 years. 

When Alexander the Great conquered 
Porus, king of India, he took a great 
elephant that had fought gallantly for 



the defeated king, named him Ajax, ded- 
icated him to the sun, placed upon him a 
metal band with the inscription, "Alex- 
ander, the son of Jupiter, dedicated Ajax 
to. the sun." The elephant was found 
alive 350 years later. 

The average age of cats is fifteen 
years; of squirrels, seven or eight years; 
of rabbits, seven; a bear rarely exceeds 
twenty years; a wolf, twenty; a fox, 
fourteen to sixteen. Lions are compara- 
tively long lived, instances having been 
recorded where they reached the age of 
seventy years. 

Pigs have been known to live to the 
age of twenty years and horses to sixty, 
but the average age of the horse is twen- 
ty-five to thirty. Camels sometimes live 
to the age of one hundred and stags are 
very long lived, one having been taken 
by Charles VI., in the forest of Senlis, 
which bore about its neck a collar on 
which was engraved, " Caesar hov mihi 
donavit." Whether or not this stag had 
actually lived since the days of one of 
the Cfesars it is impossible to say, but 
the evidence seems good. 

Eagles occasionally and ravens fre- 
quently reach the age of 100 years and 
swans have been known to live 300 years. 
A tortoise has been known to live 107 
years. 

Efforts have been made to connect the 
rapidity of the pulse beat with longevity, 
but no logical conclusion can be reached, 
as will be seen from the fact that the 
pulse of a lion beats forty times a min- 
ute; that of a tiger, ninety-six times;, of 
a horse, forty times; of a wolf, forty-five 
times; of a fox, forty-three times; of a 
bear, thirty-three times, and of an eagle, 
160 times. It has been impossible to 
count the beats of an elephant's pulse, 
but that of a butterfly beats sixty times 
to the minute. 

Save Indoor Labor. 

Farming will never be what it ought 
to be until there is proportionately as 
much improved labor-saving machinery 
in the farmhouse kitchen as there is in 
the fields.

BRETHREN" FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



Elder Thomas J. Kolb. 

By M. C Flohr. 

The history of the Church of the 
Brethren for 1914 records the death of 
one her useful men, — Eld. Thomas J. 
Kolb, who passed from labor to reward 
April 28, 1914. He was born Oct. 5, 
1844, in Frederick County, Md. He spent 




Eld. Thos. J. Kolb. 

his boyhood aays on the farm in his 
native county. Then he came to Car- 
roll County and entered the employment 
of a milling establishment. His educa- 
tional advantages were limited, but he 
made use of his natural ability and be- 
came a valuable man in his community 
and to the church of his choice. 

Oct. 1, 1865, he accepted his Savior, 
and was received into the church by the 
rite of baptism. He was elected to the 
ministry Oct. 11, 1879, advanced to the 
second degree of the ministry Sept. 2, 
1881, and given the oversight of Mon- 
ocacy, his home congregation, April 6, 
1901, having been advanced to the elder- 
ship a few years earlier. 

Bro. Kolb's love and devotion to the 
church were exemplified by his faithful- 



ness to her doctrines and attendance at 
all services. Often he would drive eight- 
een miles to an appointment in the 
morning, and return to fill one at home 
at night. The principles of the church, as 
he understood them, based on the Gos- 
pel, were very precious to him, and he 
ofttimes lamented the worldward tend- 
encies of the church in his last years. 
Early in his church life he was an active 
Sunday-school worker and music leader, 
assisting in both as superintendent and 
director. He often accompanied Eld. 

D. P. Sayler, and led the congregation 
in the singing. He was a leader among 
men, loved and respected by all who 
knew him,' whether in the church or out 
of it. At the age of twenty-two Bro. 
Kolb married Miss Mary Margaret Say- 
ler, daughter of Bro. Jacob Sayler, a 
brother of Eld. D. P. Sayler. Starting 
life humbly, he became a farmer, an auc- 
tioneer, and a merchant, all of which en- 
terprises he conducted successfully, and 
as becometh a man of God. 

Bro. Kolb was dearly devoted to his 
companion, who, though several years 
his senior, always enjoyed and shared his 
pleasures, successes and sorrows. To 
them were born four children, Rosa A., 
Mrs. E. D. Diller, Detour, Md., in whose 
home he died; Sudie A., Mrs. M. C. 
Flohr, Washington, D. C; Jesse W., 
Frederick, Md.; and Florence E., Mrs. 

E. H. Koons, Hagerstown, Md. His 
aged companion, all the children, six 
grandchildren, and one great-grandchild 
survive him; also a sister and a brother. 

Inheriting the Christian principles from 
a sainted mother, whom he loved as his 
own soul, Bro. Kolb had but to develop 
his natwral qualities to become the man 
he was. Raised under the Lutheran faith, 
he had to change to gospel teaching and 
obedience, as preached and believed by 
the Church of the Brethren. He was 
ever studious, acquired quite a library, 
and sought to know his Bible, which was 
always his Guide and Comfort, even toi 
the last. He was especially a leader of 
young folks, and his home was ever open

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 1915. 



to them, ^or comfort and enjoyment. 
His was a genuine home for our mem- 
bers. He solemnized many marriages 
and officiated at many funerals. 

Bro. Kolb served his church as dele- 
gate to District Meeting frequently, and 
was several times Moderator and Read- 
ing Clerk thereof. Three times he rep- 
resented his State District on Standing 
Committee at Annual Meeting, — at Roan- 
oke, Va., in 1899; Bristol, Va.-Tenn., in 
1905; and Des Moines, Iowa, in 1908. At 
the latter meeting he became critically 
ill. Against the advice of his physicians, 
he directed the brethren to bring him 
home, where he arrived safely and be- 
came entirely well, serving his God and 
church for another six years. Brethren 
W. P. Englar, C. D. Bonsack, and J. S. 
Geiser, whose help was gladly given in 
bringing him home, were always praised 
for this act of kindness. 

Bro. Kolb was associate elder of Mid- 
dletown Valley congregation for about 
four years. His counsel was sought by 
the District, by the church, and by in- 
dividual members, — being conservative, 
kind, considerate and safe to all. He 
served as a trustee of the Fahrney Me- 
morial Home for the Aged from its first 
organization until a year before his 
death, when he requested to be relieved 
on account of failing health. The Home 
is the property of the Eastern and Mid- 
dle Maryland Districts. At the time of 
his death he was a director of a prosper- 
ous banking institution. In Bro. Kolb the 
church has lost a leader, the District a 
counsellor, the community an exemplary 
citizen, and the family a loving, kind, 
indulgent and forbearing husband and 
father. Too much can not be said of his 
excellent Christian character. He suf- 
fered intensely but patiently for a year, 
being ever ready and willing to change 
this life of anxiety and worry for one of 
eternal bliss and glory, — all at his Fa- 
ther's will. 

May 1 his remains were laid to rest 
peacefully in the cemetery at Rocky 
Ridge, Md., to await the resurrection of 
the just. The esteem in which he was 



held in the community and church was 
attested by the unusually large attend- 
ance at his funeral. The large church 
would not accommodate all who wished 
to be present. Services were conducted 
by Eld. C. D. Bonsack, assisted by Eld. 
W. P. Englar and Eld. W. E. Roop.

The Laugh of a Happy Boy. 

Tell me of music sweeter 

Than the laugh of a happy boy, 
With his face running over with smiles, 

And his heart bubbling up with joy; 
With no thought nor care for the morrow, 

No trouble his fun to destroy; 
Tell me of music sweeter 

Than the laugh of a happy boy. 

With his hands all covered with mud, 

And his face pretty much the same, 
And those pants that were clean this morn- 
ing 

Ah, me! but who's to blame? 
His laugh is just as merry, 

And the 'dirt doesn't seem to annoy; 
Tell me of music sweeter 

Than the laugh of that happy boy. 

He didn't mean to make you trouble, 

When he fell in that puddle there, 
"Jus' playin' I was Robinson Crusoe 

Runnin' away from a bear." 
And then, too, what makes you bother 

Only adds the more to his joy, 
And your trouble is all forgotten 

In the laugh of a happy boy. 

Oh. the laugh of a happy boy can make 

A whole sad household glad; 
It can chase away the gloom that comes. 

When trials and sorrows you've had, 
It drowns the sob, it stays the tear, 

And grief flees away, for joy 
Has come, through the merry laugh, 

The laugh of a happy boy. 

Laugh on, my boy, laugh on, I say; 

This world has no time to weep, 
No time to sorrow, no time to pine. 

Laugh on, and forever keep 
That laughter of yours a-ringing out, 

And, like a balm, you will destroy 
The aches and pains of this world of ours. 

Laugh on, my happy boy.

Teachers and Officers of the Sunday-School 

Ruts in roads are frequently dang-erous, and " ruts " In methods will kill

help to prevent " ruts." We have a better line of books on Sunday-school work 
than ever before. 

For teachers we have such books as: The Making of a Teacher, by M. G. 
Brumbaugh ($1.00). The Teacher, The Child, and The Book, by A. F. Schauffler 
($1.00). Getting and Holding, by Wm. H. Hamby (5'Oc). 

We also have books for the various departments as follows: Practical Primary 
Plans, by Israel P. Black ($1.00). The Girl in Her Teens, by Marearet Slattery 
(50c). The Boy and the Church, by Eugene C. Foster (75c). The Home Depart- 
ment of Today, by Flora V. Stebbins (25c). 

For superintendents we have such as: Sunday-school Essentials, by Amos R.

Four Arabian Proverbs. 

He that knows not that he knows not, 
is stupi^. Shun him. 

He that knows not and knows that he 
knows not, is good. Teach him. 

He that knows and knows not that he 
knows, is asleep. Arouse him. 

He that knows and knows that he 
knows, is wise. Follow him. 



How to Clean a Clock. 

To clean a clock lay a rag well sat- 
urated with kerosene oil in the bottom 
of it. The fumes will loosen the dirt and 
it will drop out. After a few days this 
should be removed and another saturated 
rag placed in the clock, the fumes of 
which will lubricate the works.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



First Love Feast and Church in 
Barbour County, W. Va. 

By C. W. Guthrie. 

At the little village of Kasson, Barbour 
County, W. Va., generally known as 
Danville, made up of two stores, a 
postoffice, and a half dozen dwellings, 
the first love feast in Barbour County 
was held at the home of Bro. David Ho- 
vatter, who passed to his reward twenty- 
eight years ago. 

There is nothing left to mark the lo- 
cation, where once stood the old log 
house in which the services were held, 
except a small mound, as shown in the 
accompanying photograph, directly in 
front of the apple tree at the left of the 
picture. 

The date of the 
feast is not definitely 
known, but it was 
probably about the 
middle of September, 
1845. The size of the 
log house was about 
eighteen by twenty- 
eight feet; but in or- 
der to accommodate 
the crowd, the entire 
front of the house 
was taken out by 
sawing off the logs. 
Then a canopy was 
erected, twenty-eight 
feet wide, connected 
with the house, and 
extending about thir- 
ty-five feet to the 
country road. This provided ample 
room for the several hundred who came 
from far and near to attend the serv- 
ices. All the movable furniture was tak- 
en upstairs, in order to accommodate be- 
tween forty and fifty during the night. 

The meeting began on Saturday, at 
ten o'clock in the forenoon, and contin- 
ued over Sunday. Meals were served 
for the two days, including breakfast on 
Monday morning. What provision was 
made for feeding the people, is not 



known, except that one hundred loaves 
of bread and three hundred pies were 
baked. 

For three years prior to this, Bro. 
James Quinter, — who was the first min- 
ister to reach this part of the country, 
and who could well be called a pioneer 
missionary, — had been filling appoint- 
ments from time to time, at the various 
homes, and was present on this love 
feast occasion. 

When twenty-two years old, Bro. 
Quinter was called to the ministry, and 
four years later he began making his vis- 
its to this locality. He was twenty-nine 
years old at the time of this feast. His 
home, at this time, was at what was 
known as " Dunkard Bottom," near Mor- 
gantown, W. Va. 




Raccoon Creek, 



Where Bro. Quinter Baptized a Number of 
Applicants. 

Brethren James Kelso, John Wise, Ja- 
cob Thomas, Jacob Mock, William Buck- 
lew, Jacob Beeghly, and other minister- 
ing brethren, may have been present, 
as they had been coming here, and were 
companions of Bro. Quinter. Henry 
Wilson was elected to the ministry at 
this time, which was the first election 
ever held in this county. 

There was a large attendance on Sat- 
urday, but a still larger one on Sunday. 
One brother said to some who had not

been there on Saturday: "You ought to 
have been here yesterday. One of the 
old brethren preached, and we had such 
a fine sermon. Today the boy preaches," 
— referring to Bro. Quinter, — " so you 
may not hear much." But at the close 
of the sermon their verdict v^as, " He is 
a boy in stature, but a man in preaching." 

As Bro. Quinter stood on the porch, 
in the midst of the audience, on Sunday 
morning, and delivered his message, his 
strong, clear voice was heard at Adam 
Stemple's home, two miles up Raccoon 
Creek. The creek is shown in the photo- 
graph. Here Bro. Quinter baptized many 
of his applicants. 

A short time after the feast a series of 
meetings was held at this home, when 




The Shiloh Church. 

over forty applicants were baptized. My 
father was one of the number. 

About six years later the first log 
church in Barbour County was built one 
mile from this place, known as the Shiloh 
church. The deed for the lot upon which 
the church was built, dated Sept. 11, 1852, 
is in the possession of Bro. John Wilson, 
who also gave me much of the informa- 
tion here incorporated. 

This church, — as other log buildings, — 
was built by notching the ends of the 
logs, so as to join them at the corners. 



The chinks between the logs were filled 
with mortar, composed of clay and straw. 
The seats were made of slabs, split from 
round logs, and the uneven places were 
taken off with the adz and broadax. 
Holes were then bored in the slabs, and 
round pieces of wood inserted for legs. 
Seven years after the church was built, 
or thirteen years after the feast, Eld. 
John Kline visited this part of the State, 
— as referred to in his notes, — and at- 
tended the love feast at the log church, 
Sept. 10, 1859. At that time my uncle, 
Bro. Jacob Nicola, who has now passed 
to his reward, was elected to the deacon- 
ship. 

The size of the old log church 
was about twenty-six by thirty-six feet 
and it stood, as 
nearly as can be 
ascertained, sev- 
enteen years. 
During this time, 
Bro. Quinter made 
frequent visits to 
the Shiloh church, 
preaching there, 
and baptizing 
many. 

About forty 
years ago the old 
log church was 
torn down, to 
make room for the 
present building 
(as shown in the 
cut), erected on 
the same founda- 
tion. 
Bro. Bennett Phillips, who is eighty- 
seven years old, and the oldest member 
of the Shiloh congregation, informs me 
that he assisted in the building of the 
present church. He said that Bro. Sam- 
uel Bowman was the contractor, and that 
he worked for him without any agree- 
ment, whatever, as to the wages to be 
paid. But when the church was com- 
pleted he was allowed one dollar and 
twenty-five cents per day and board, and 
found that he had just worked out the 
amount pledged toward its erection. He

The Revised Inglenook Cook Book 

The Revised Cook Book is much superior to the old one. A number of new 
and valuable features have been introduced in this edition. Some of these are, 
menus for 'different occasions, simple home remedies, foods for the sick, blank 
pages in connection with each department for pasting in clippings of recipes, or 
writing in as desired. Much of the material for the book has been gathered from 
various sources, experienced housekeepers, nurses, physicians, etc. Each chapter 
is accompanied by an introduction, giving a general discussion of the subject in 
hand. 

The book contains 416 page«?, bound in white washable oilcloth with handsome 
cover design. Price, postpaid, 60c. Special prices to agents.

was not a member at that time, but 
joined the church soon afterward. And 
since he has now been a member of the 
Church of the Brethren for forty years, 
this gives us practically the date of its 
erection, which corresponds very close- 
ly with what others have given. 

There has been no record kept, — or at 
least none can be found, — of the early 
experiences of the Shiloh church, except 
the original deed, already referred to. 

This information has been gathered 
from the oldest members still living 
(some of the dates given vary some- 
what), but from circumstances by which 
positive dates have been secured, it is 
believed that the dates here given are as 
nearly correct as it was possible to as- 
certain them. 

The main point of difference, however, 
is in the date when the old log church 
was built. Several assert that the church 
was erected in the fall, before Bro. Sam- 
my Colebank died in the spring. The 
date on his monument is March 30, 1847, 
and it is the oldest grave in the cemetery 
adjoining the church. Others, however, 
say it was not until five years after the 
church was built, which corresponds 
with the date of the original deed which 
includes the ground on which the church 
and cemetery are located. 

Had an effort been made, a few years 
ago, it would not have been difficult to 
ascertain all the facts, for a number of 
the oldest members have only passed 
away within the last year or two. As it 
was, the securing of the information, re- 
ferred to in this article, has required con- 
siderable time and effort, as well as trav- 
eling through various parts of Tucker, 
Taylor and Barbour Counties. This, per- 
haps, was about the last opportunity of 
saving this much of the early history of 
this place from oblivion. For at least 
nine years after the present church was 
built, Eld. James Quinter continued to 
come here, for Bro. Sylvanus Annon and 
wife remember well the last time he was 
known to be present, which was at the 
love feast in the fall of 1878. The sub- 
ject of his last sermon preached here was 



"The Parable of the Prodigal Son." 
Just who had charge of. the church at 
the beginning is not known, but soon 
afterward Eld. Henry Wilson was or- 
dained to the eldership and placed in 
charge of the church, which position he 
retained until he met his death by the 
hands of soldiers, at his own home in 1863. 
After this Eld. Elias Auvil had charge 
of the church for nearly forty years, and 
was succeeded by Eld. W. H. Shaffer 
until his death in 1901. For a short pe- 
riod after this. Eld. Zach. Annon had 
charge, until Eld. Emory Shahan was or- 
dained and placed in charge, which po- 
sition he occupied until 1908, when the 
present elder, Bro. Obed Hamstead, was 
elected. 

One of the photographic views, ac- 
companying this article, shows the 
mound where once stood the old log 
house in which the first love feast in 
Barbour County, W. Va., was held. The 
other view shows the Shiloh church, 
now forty years old. Here Eld. James 
Quinter preached, as referred to above. 
*This house is standing on the site of the 
old log church, the first in this county, 
erected in 1852.

Civil War Times. 

Some Experiences of Dr. P. R. Wrights- 
man in Those Stirring Days. 

[The following fell Into the hands of 
Bro. J. H. Morris, of Cordell, Okla., and is 
sent us for the Almanac. A part of the 
story will be found in the " Olive Branch." 
—Ed.] 

In the spring of 1862, Southern sol- 
diers came to my house, hunting for fire- 
arms. I had none of these except a 
common plantation rifle. This, together 
with the shot-pouch, they took without 
pay. The Southern soldiers came from 
time to time for three years, and forci- 
bly took my crops and eleven head of 
good horses. 




Dr. P. R. Wrightsman. 

When the soldiers came for the last 
horse, they rode up, cursing and swear- 
ing. I was impressed, by their manner 
and language, that they came with in- 
tent to kill me. Part of the squadron 
went to the field for my last horse, and 
a part remained with me. Not know- 
ing what might happen to me, I stepped 
inside the barn, stood with hands ex- 
tended upwards, and prayed to my Heav- 
enly Father, saying: ** Dear Father, save 
me from these men. Have mercy upon 



them, turn them from their evil course, 
and save thy servant." I never exercised 
stronger faith in prayer than at that 
time. It seemed as if I were speaking, 
face to face, with my Blessed Lord. 

When I stepped out to the soldiers 
again, I felt that God had answered my 
prayer, because I could see the Satanic 
influence leave their faces like the shad- 
ow of a cloud before the bright sun. 

Then the soldiers said, " Mr. Wrights- 
man, can we get some bread?" 

" Oh! yes," said I, "we are commanded 
to feed the hungry." 

I went to the kitchen and asked my 
sisters to cut off a large slice of good 
bread, and butter it well for each man. 
They did so, and I took it out and hand- 
ed it to them. They thanked me for the 
bread, bowed their heads, and rode off 
through the bars. They got down to 
put up the bars, but took with them my 
last horse. 

Feeling so keenly that, the Lord had 
saved my life, I thanked him and took 
courage. This occurred in the spring of 
1863. In February of 1864 I was con- 
scripted. Learning of their coming aft- 
er me, some of my neighbors, with my- 
self, fled to the mountains in the night. 
With snow knee-deep, and provisions on 
our backs, we plodded up the mountain- 
side. 

At break of day we halted and pre- 
pared something to eat. Here we re- 
mained, in the snow-capped mountains, 
for a number of days. When we received 
word that the soldiers were coming aft- 
er us, we went to the settlement, and 
hid until the panic of excitement passed 
away. I then returned home. 

In framing the constitution of the 
Confederacy, this clause was Inserted: 
"All persons conscientiously opposed to 
bearing arms may be exempt from mili- 
tary service by paying $500 in lieu of 
service." But well on in the war, when 
the South needed all the men within her 
borders, local authorities arrested many 
of our brethren and shut them up in 
prisons and stockades, in various places, 
— even after they had paid their $500. 



^ 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



This very much stirred our members in 
Eastern Tennessee. At a council meeting 
in the Limestone church, a petition was 
drawn up to send to the Confederate 
Congress, asking it to release our breth- 
ren from military service. It was urged 
that we were, and always had been, con- 
scientiously opposed to bearing arms. 
Most of the members signed this docu- 
ment. The next question was as to who 
would carry up this petition and repre- 
sent our claims. 

All of our more aged brethren shrank 
from going to Richmond, to the Con- 
federate Congress. I was away at school 
at the time and it was decided that I 
should be sent, — a mere youth as I was. 

The deacon brethren came to see me 
and reported their mission. I regretted 
to leave school, and pleaded that the old- 
er brethren go, but they said it was an 
act of the church. I said: "Well, breth- 
ren, I am willing to do anything in my 
power for my brethren in prison. If you 
and the church will aid in your prayers, 
I will go." 

I prepared myself, and started from 
Limestone depot. The cars were full of 
soldiers going to .Richmond. A Meth- 
odist minister was also on the train, — as 
I remember, from North Carolina. He 
and I being the only citizen passengers 
on board the train, as far as I know, he 
sat down by me and asked me if I were 
a minister. I told him that I had that 
privilege. He asked me to what church 
I belonged. I told him that I belonged 
to the German Baptist or Brethren 
church. He said that he had never 
heard of such a church. I asked if he did 
not read the papers, which, of late, had 
much to say about us. He then asked 
me as to our belief. I answered that we 
believe in conversion, a change of life, 
in baptism by trine immersion, washing 
the saints' feet, the Lord's supper, com- 
munion, nonconformity to the world, 
nonswearing, nonlitigatio*n, and non- 
warring.. 

He said: "Don't you think we all 
ought to fight for our glorious Confed- 
eracy? " 



I answered in the negative, because 
Christ said, " Thou shalt not kill." 

He replied, " This war is an excep- 
tion." 

I said, " Christ did not make any ex- 
ceptions because he definitely stipulated, 
' Love your enemies and pray for them 
that despitefully use you.' " 

Failing to gain his point, he undertook 
another scheme: "Don't you believe 
that Gen. Washington was a good man? " 

I answered that I had never seen him. 

** Well, did you never read anything 
about him? " 

I told him that several times had I read 
his life history, but that my Bible did 
not say anything about Gen. Washing- 
ton. 

" Well," said he, " don't you believe 
God used Gen. Washington to set up this 
Government? " 

" Yes, sir," I answered, " God has often 
made use of one individual or nation to 
carry out his plans concerning another. 
And you believe that God set up this 
Government by Washington, do you? " 

He said: "I firmly believe it." 

" Then, what do you think God will do 
with you for trying to tear down what 
he set up? " 

He never answered me, but got up and 
went into another car. I have never 
seen him since, as far as I know. 

The soldiers around us were inter- 
ested in our conversation, and listened 
attentively, but when I put my last ques- 
tion, they said: "Shoot him, slay him, 
drag him out." Various similar expres- 
sions were made, but I felt that the Lord 
was with me, and I was not alarmed at 
all, but rode on to Richmond without 
any further unpleasantness. 

While in Richmond, I stepped into an 
auction room, where they were selling 
slaves. The slaves were stripped and ex- 
amined in a side-room, to see if they 
were sound and able-bodied. Then they 
were clothed and brought out into a 
great hall, put on a high block and auc-, 
tioned off to the highest bidder. Some 
were old, gray-headed men and women, 
some were middle-aged, and some were 
but children. Here they were separated,

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC, 1915. 



never to see each other again. Two or 
three hundred of them brought from 
$500 to $2,500 a head. This I saw myself. 
How thankful I was to belong to a 
church which does not deal in slaves, 
and in the souls of men! 

At the proper time I went to the house 
of the Confederate Congress, presented 
my petition and made my little speech. 
One of the Congressmen from Hawkins 
County, Tenn., replied: "You people 
are all opposed to slavery, — the very 
thing we are fighting for." 

I replied, " Very true, sir, but we were 
always opposed to slavery, and not only 
just now, since the war began. More 
than that, — it is no use to take our peo- 
ple to the army for they will not fight; 
they would be just in your way. They 
are the best subjects in your Govern- 
ment; they stay at home and mind their 
own business. They are mostly farmers. 
They raise grain, and your men come 
and take it. In this way we feed the 
hungry. Our people never bushwhack 
your men, but are loyal and law-abiding 
citizens. If you will let us stay at home, 
we will continue to be loyal citizens to 
the powers that are over us. We hum- 
bly pray for your acceptance of our 
petition." 

Secretary of State, Alex. H. Stephens, 
was consulted and finally my petition 
was accepted and officially there wa§ 
written on it " Granted." 

With my heart overflowing with grat- 
itude to our Heavenly Father for his de- 
livery of our brethren, then in prison, I 
returned to my home at Limestone, 
Tenn. Here Bro. M. M. Bashor met me 
at the depot and urged me to continue 
on to Knoxville, on the same train, as 
more of our brethren had been taken off 
while I was at Richmond. 

At Knoxville, I saw Col. Ledbetter, 
commander of conscripts and prisoners, 
and showed him my papers. He, with an 
uncouth remark, ordered me to go out to 
the stockade and get my men. I went 
and entered the apartment. Guards were 
on one side of the dead line, and pris- 
oners on the opposite side. 

As soon as the brethren saw me, they 



exclaimed: "There is Bro. Wrightsman." 
Then, rushing across the dead line, they 
shook hands with me and saluted me. 
The soldiers and guards were struck with 
amazement. Some said they wished they 
had such a brother, and expressed their 
willingness to join our church. I told 
them they must be converted before 
they could join our church. This was in 
the summer of 1863. We all went home 
like happy children. " Love one anoth- 
er." 

In the fall of '64, our church at Lime- 
stone had prepared for a love feast, as 
just then all seemed to be quiet. 

On Saturday morning about all of our 
members repaired to the churchhouse to 
hold the communion.' When we arrived 
there, we found a regiment of soldiers 
on the grounds around the churchhouse, 
or near it. Many of our members were 
frightened, and some of them urged the 
dismissal of the meeting. I told them, 
" No, let us go on with the meeting, for, 
perhaps, the Lord has sent them to hear 
the Gospel." This delayed the begin- 
ning of our service. 

In the meantime the Colonel heard of 
our dilemma. He at once sent word to 
go on with our meeting, that nothing 
should be molested, but we should be 
protected. So we went on with the meet- 
ing. We invited the soldiers to our 
meeting. It was one of the best love 
feasts I ever attended. We had the best 
of order and attention. All behaved well 
and many requests were made for us to 
come to different parts of the country 
and preach after the war. But, alas, no 
doubt many of the poor men, there en- 
camped, fell in battle. Thank God for 
the Brethren church that does not go to 
war. 

Sleepers for Sale.

Sanitation No Mystery 

There is nothing mysterious about 
cleanliness, and cleanliness is the basic 
principle of sanitation. Neither is it 
difficult to understand why to be clean 
enhances comfort and improves health. 
A child can understand this, for it is a 
fact admitting of no dispute or argu- 
ment. 

The housekeeper can give an impulse 
to practical sanitation by seeing that 
carpets are kept swept, that dust is 
mopped up with a damp cloth and not 
scattered by a feather duster to again 
settle in other spots; that the refrigera- 
tor is scrubbed out at least three times 
a week, using hot water and soap to do 
the cleaning; that milk, fish, meats and 
vegetables are not kept together in the 
same compartment in a refrigerator, and 
that milk is always stored in tightly fit- 
ting stoppered bottles. These are some 
of the little sanitary practices which the 
mother and housekeeper can find of 
practical benefit and for which no med- 
ical man need be consulted. Of course, 
everybody knows all this, but isn't it 
strange that so many people are found 
who neglect to put into practice what 
they know? 

The man of the house — the head of 
the family — can also find many things 
pertaining to practical sanitation which 
he can successfully do about the yard 
and premises and with little trouble. 
Keep the weeds down because they are 
unsightly and afford a very favorable 
hiding place for all sorts of filth. Rake 
out and cart away every old tin can and 
pail. Caution the servants and see that 
they do not leav.e tubs with water stand- 
ing for days. 

The man of the house can also direct 
his attention to suppressing the fly nui- 
sance. How? By personally seeing to 
it that the stable is kept clean, manure 
heaps screened, and if not screened then 
covered liberally with lime to several 
inches. Flies breed in horse manure; 
lay their eggs there. Do you know 
that? Therefore, if the fly eggs are 



killed as soon as laid, the quantities of 
flies will be daily lessened until the nui- 
sance is corrected entirely. This is easy 
to practice, and attention to this small 
feature of cleanliness constitutes anoth- 
er factor in practical sanitation. 

If typhoid fever lurks in a community 
and the source of infection cannot be 
traced, then, by boiling all drinking wa- 
ter a possible means of introduction of 
the germ into the human system will 
be prevented. Here again is found a 
practical application of a sanitary caution 
and forethought against disease intro- 
duction. 

Sanitation in practice is what we need, 
and the average citizen can, if he or she 
will, find plenty of useful applications of 
sanitary principles if an eye is only cast 
about to find them, and will exercise his 
or her common sense in carrying out 
such thoughts. 

How " Uncle Sam " Got His 
Name 

The nickname " Uncle Sam," as ap- 
plied to the United States government, 
is said to have originated as follows: 
Samuel Wilson, commonly called " Uncle 
Sam," was a government inspector of 
beef and pork at Troy, N. Y., about 
1812. A contractor, Elbert Anderson, 
purchased a quantity of provisions and 
the barrels were marked " E. A.," An- 
derson's initials, and " U. S." for United 
States. .The latter initials were not 
familiar to Wilson's workmen, who in- 
quired what they meant. A facetious 
fellow answered: "I don't know, unless 
they mean * Uncle Sam.' " A vast 
amount of property afterward passed 
through Wilson's hands marked in the 
same manner and he often joked upon 
the extent of his possessions. The joke 
spread through all the departments of 
the government, and before long the 
United States was popularly referred to 
as "Uncle Sam."

Fruit As Medicine 

Apples, pears and quinces are all mem- 
bers of a botanical family that includes 
the roses and is scientifically known as 
pyrusmalus. 

Incidentally, the apple has a wider 
range of growth than any other fruit, 
and the United States is the largest 
grower of any country in the world. 
Ripe apples, eaten raw and thoroughly 
masticated, are excellent for digestive 
troubles. 

The pear shares the medicinal qual- 
ities just recited and in addition is some- 
what more easily digested by weak 
stomachs than is the apple. 

The quince is only used in the form 
of preserves, as a rule. It is said that 
owing to its excessive astringency when 
raw, it is employed by the peasantry of 
Europe to stop hemorrhages by placing 
slices of it on wounds. 

The curative powers of the grape are 
established facts, as the history of the 
" cures '* in which the vine plays the 
chief part, testifies. 

Rhubarb, owing to the large propor- 
tion of oxalic acid that It contains, is 
a capital anti-scorbutic. In case of mi- 
nor forms of scurvy it acts as a curative. 
The young plant, when stewed and eaten 
at breakfast, is of great assistance to the 
constipated. Its laxative qualities in 
general are well known. 

Bananas should be used with caution 
by the constipated. 



The fig possesses laxative powers of 
a high order. This is also true of dates 
and tamarinds. 

Peaches, apricots and nectarines have 
marked laxative effects. 

The plum, greengage, damson, and so 
forth, all have medicinal qualities. 

Blackberries, raspberries, huckleberries 
and most other berries act as blood pur- 
ifiers and laxatives. 

Remedy for Unruly Chickens 

Put a large chicken foot on a piece of 
paper, let it be pressed down so as to 
spread out well, then with a pencil, mark 
all around. Cut out, leaving a narrow, 
straight end to fit around the leg. 

Send the boys to the tailor shops to 
ask for pieces of thick cloth, cut out by 
paper pattern twice as many pieces as 
there are chicken feet to trouble, sew 
two pieces together, put a foot in, then 
sew strongly, but not tight, around the 
leg. 

For an hour or two the hens will make 
a great fuss, but that is all. They can't 
scratch, yet they will not suffer, and one 
pair of these shoes will last an entire 
season, or rather, until everything is so 
well grown that no fowls can do any 
hurt. My grandmother, in New Hamp- 
shire, always shod her poultry. My 
father in Wisconsin did the same, and 
they always had fine gardens and prize 
fowls.

To ALMANAC READERS 

Here are a few letters giving the actual experience of Miami Valley farmers. 
Are you doing as well?

R. W. BOUNCER, Proprietor. 

The Breeding of Single Comb White Leghorns a Specialty. The. Strain that Lajis and Weighs 

STOCK AND EGGS FOR SALE 

Miami, New Mexico, Oct. 13, 1914, 
To whom it may concern: 

Five years ago I left the city in an eastern state and came to Miami Valley, Colfax 
County, New Mexico, and settled on a small farm which I bought. 

Two years ago I leased as much more land as can be handled with two good teams. 
The crops raised were wheat, oats, barley, peas, corn and alfalfa. After retaining feed, 
grain, hay and hogs marketed each year were approximately $2,000.00 besides the in- 
crease in horses, cattle and poultry. 

In the meantime, a fine apple orchard of 8 acres, which I planted, has been growing 
and is now coming into bearing. 

Poultry raising is a profitable side line for every farmer as thousands of dozens 
of eggs are consumed in the nearby lumber and mining camps, at a good price. 

To close without a word about climatic conditions would be doing this " Land of 
Sunshine " an injustice. Here one escapes the damp changeable Winters and the 
sweltering hot Summers. 

A country of homes where health, wealth and happiness abound. 

Very truly yours, (Signed) R. W. Bolinger, 

Miami, New Mexico, Oct, 12, 1914. 
To whom it, may concern: 

I came to Miami Valley last December with horses, a wagon and nothing else, no 
money. 

I leased 160 acres of Miami Valley land, I have just threshed my grain crops and 
find by valuing what I have at the present market prices, I have cleared $1,500.00 above 
all expenses of operation and living; besides I have 40 acres already seeded to Winter 
wheat. All my land was virgin sod, except 20 acres. 

I had had no previous experience in irrigation farming. I believe I can do better 
next year. 

Yours truly. (Signed) W. E. Shamburg. 

Farmers Development Company, Miami, New Mexico, Oct, 12, 1914. 

Springer, N. M. 
Gentlemen: 

I farmed 140 acres of Miami Valley land during the past season; about ten acres 
was in native hay; about 60 acres was seeded to alfalfa with a nurse crop of oats. The 
balance was native sod and was seeded to oats. I find the value of my share of the 
crops after I have paid all of my debts covering all expense of living and horse feed 
for the past year is better than $1,200.00; besides I have between 40 and 50 acres al- 
ready seeded to Winter wheat. My alfalfa is a fine stand. Judging by other fields in 
the Valley it should be yielding five tons per acre in a couple of years. Some of my 
sod oats made more than 60 bushels to the acre; of a quality which tests 49 pounds per 
bushel. Besides the small grains and alfalfa, I find that corn does well here, yielding 
as high as 60 bushels per acre. These crops, the excellent climate and the abundance 
of pure water make ideal conditions for hog raising. I observe that others in the 
Valley are making big money from hogs, so I am starting in the hog business. I be- 
lieve there is a fortune here for any man who will work intelligently and stick to it. 

Yours truly, (Signed) George Shamburg. 

Miami, New Mexico, Oct. 16, 1914. 
To whom it may concern: 

I moved to Miami Valley, New Mexico, five years ago, I had $2,150.00 to start with 
and now 80 acres of irrigated land and improved. My personal property and real 
estate is worth at least $16,000.00 at present. We have raised as much as 103 bushels 
of oats to the acre, 40 bushels of wheat, 71 bushels of corn, 60 bushels of speltz; in 
fact he who holds and drives will surely thrive in Miami Valley. 

Yours truly, (Signed) B, F. McEndarfer. 

Miami, New Mexico, October 15, 1914, 
To whom it may concern: 

I am at present operating my farm as follows, a combination of alfalfa, corn and 
hogs; corn making sixty bushels per acre; net proceeds averaging about $2,000.00 per 
year. 

Yours truly, (Signed) C. E. Metzger. 

Remember that Miami has a prosperous church of the Brethren with beautiful 
new churchhouse. good school and good neighbors. These things coupled with the 
beautiful natural surroundings, the ideal climate, and the conditions which enable 
men to thrive as have the writers of the accompanying letters, make Miami a place 
where you will be happy and where your children will grow into the men and women 
you would have them. 

We have a few farms for sale at present. They are bargains and terms are easy. 
Write for information.

The Wonderful Advantages of the Little State of Delawai 

Why^ the Brethren should locate with us here: 

1. We started the first Brethren Sunday-school and preaching service here at Eas 
ertime, 1-912. We now have an evergreen Sunday-school, and preaching each Sunda 
A/e now have two elders, one minister in the second degree, one deacon, and in £ 
thirty-one members. These Brethren came here from various parts of the Brotherhoo 
We already need a good churchhouse to further the Lord's work here. We are with 
the bounds of the Denton (Md.) congregation, of which Bro. G. S. Rairigh is elder 
charge. This appears to be a ripe field to be reaped for God. 

2. We have an equable climate. Our location, between the extreme heat of tl 
South and cold of the North, and also between the waters of the Atlantic Ocean on tl 
east and the Chesapeake Bay on the west, insures us a very desirable climate. 

3. Our soil is adapted to the production of nearly all the crops found in the ter 
perate zone, including grain and grasses, fruits and vegetables, of every description. 

4. Fish and oysters are had cheap in season. 

5. Our never-failing wells of pure, soft water astonish all who come here. 

6. Timber is still abundant for lumber and fuel, altho the best is being taken. 

7. We are located as well as any one could wish for schools, churches, and marke 
ing our crops. Within 500 miles of us live one-third the population of the Union. Th 
places near us many of our largest eastern cities, such as Washington, Baltimore, Phili 
delphia. New York, Wilmington, Pittsburgh, Boston, and scores of others. 

8. The progress made here along ail lines in the four years we have lived in Del; 
ware is certainly astonishing. — 

9. Taxes are very low and the State has few debts. 

10. Land is yet very cheap. We are selling land from $6 per acre up, yet lar 
is advancing very rapidly in price. 

11. This section is no boom proposition. What has been done here has been 
steady, gradual improvement along all lines. 

12. This State needs three times her population to develop her wonderful resource 
We invite some of those who have tried other sections to investigate Delaware f( 

themselves. We believe that with the same energy expended here as in California, f( 
example, that fair State could not compete with us in the production of that great Vi 
riety of crops which make a section truly prosperous. 

We have said enough. W^rite to me at Greenwood, Del., and lists of farms for sal 
and also other literature will be sent you. It is easy to get here from either Baltimor 
Norfolk, or Philadelphia. '
